This resistance towards hormone therapy is termed as hormone refractory breast cancer. Hence, there is an increasing need for the effective treatment in hormone refractory breast cancer market. The market holds immense future potential, as there is no standard therapy, approved for hormone refractory breast cancer. However, there are rising hopes to get approved therapies in near future as drugs such as trastuzumab and everolimus, alone or in combination, are under development for the effective treatment of hormone refractory breast cancers.
The key factors driving growth of this market include, increasing global incidences of breast cancers, uprising prevalence rates of hormone refractory breast cancers, ageing population, demands of advanced therapeutics and increasing R&D investment on breast cancer drugs. The factors restraining the market growth are the social stigma related with breast cancer examinations, and insufficient advanced chemotherapeutic treatments. Substantial number of new chemical entities (NCEs) in different phases of clinical trials would emerge as a potential opportunity in the global hormone refractory breast cancer market.
